American Blanket Company Luster Loft Blanket Review

Posted on Mar 20 2014 - 11:40pm by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


As part of our spring cleaning and redecorating, I have been spending more time redoing our master bedroom. Not only do we want a comfortable bedroom, but one that is functional enough for us to read or cuddle together while we watch movies on our projector. While repainting our bedroom is on my agenda for the next few weeks, my goal now is making our bed more comfortable. After getting our new Novosbed mattress, I knew we needed some new linens and blankets for the bed. Just as I was starting my search for the perfect king size blanket, we were approached by American Blanket Company, asking if we wanted to review one of their high quality blankets. Once I saw their website and picked out a color, I was excited for my brand new blanket to arrive!

American Blanket Company Luster Loft Blanket: What is It

Looking for a super soft, fleece blanket for your bed? If so, we think you will love blankets from the American Blanket Company. These are hand crafted in a historic textile mill in Fall River, Massachusetts; unlike other companies, they don’t cut corners, making blankets that are made to last a lifetime. and are guaranteed not to shed or pill.

To truly spoil yourself, consider trying their Luster Loft Fleece blanket, which may (from my experience) very well be the softest fleece blanket in the world. This quality, luxury blanket has a beautiful luster finish and stays soft even after washing. These blankets are also safe for your washer and dryer, allowing you to truly enjoy these wonderful blankets!

American Blanket Company Luster Loft Blanket: Overall

When my Luster Loft fleece blanket first arrived, I was almost too scared to open it. You see, it came in the most beautiful gift box and I really didn’t want to open it. My husband had to actually take the blanket from me and open it so that I would take out the blanket. Once I took the top off, however, I immediately fell in love with the blanket. Not only was the most beautiful light beige color, but may very well be the softest blanket I have ever touched my life. I cuddled in the blanket that night and enjoyed the warmth that came from this super soft blanket. After I had tried out this blanket, I was hooked! So far, based on my own experience with the American Blanket Company, I am happy to give their Luster Loft Fleece Blanket an A+ rating!

    These blankets look so soft and comfy. There is nothing more comforting than to wrap yourself up in something that is so cuddly and warm.

    It does look so nice and soft! I also like that it’s made in the US – I like to support companies that drive our economy, rather than Hong Kong’s.

    Great review. We need a new blanket and I love the fact that it is safe for the washer and dryer. I am glad that there are so many colors to choose from and I have always loved the feel of fleece.

    This blanket looks so beautiful and sounds so comfy! I’d love to have one. The current blanket I’m using, no matter how much I’ve washed it, etc., just hasn’t gotten soft!

    I have just recently heard of this company. This is just another great review of this blanket. I need a good blanket that will last years as all my other comforters are thin and wearing. This looks like a great replacement!

    This looks like the type of blanket you’d want to wrap yourself up in when the day has been a long one or if you’re under the weather. The softness even show in the pictures and the colors all beautiful.

    I’m thinking since I never quite got warm this winter that one of the Luster Loft blankets would do the trick for next year. I would like the King Sized Fleeet in Sea Mist Green would be a perfect choice.

    I have been a faithful purchaser of another type of blanket (whose brand name I shall not mention) for years, but the quality has fallen as of late. These Luster Loft Blankets appear to be an even better version of the blankets I used to so adore. If it were not for your review, I may never have heard about them. Thank you!

    Your review is very informative. I love that it is made in the USA and is very lightweight. It is very surprising but also very telling that it came in a very nice gift box. This tells me that they take pride in what they make. That is something that you don’t always find these days.

    These blankets just look luxurious, I can only guess how they feel. If I were lucky enough to win one you may never get me out of bed due to my cuddling in it LOL

    It has always been extremely difficult for me to find a quality, luxury blanket that will hold up. They are great when you first get them but after a couple of launderings they look and feel awful. These sound like they may actually stand the test of time. And, I love that they are made in America!

    I could tell from the pictures that these blankets would be plush. I’m kind of like you in that I sometimes don’t want to open the new blanket because I want it to stay in pristine condition and blankets always look so luxurious in the package. If I don’t win one of these, I’m definitely going to look into buying one. Great review.

    I read about the history of this blanket company and found it very interesting. I have one of their throws and it is the softest throw I have ever felt in my life. I would love to try one of these blankets and I’m sure I wouldn’t be disappointed.

    I had a blanket that looked similar to this but wasnt quite the same…it was cheap and my cat ended up clawing through it. I tried sewing up the holes but it just wasnt the same afterwards. I would love to have a nice blanket again that I wouldnt have to worry about my cat clawing through it (not cheaply made) and that would actually keep me warm. As my old blanket was nice…it just wasnt up to snuff.

    • Susan Bewley March 22, 2014 at 5:20 pm - Reply

      The blanket is super soft! I nearly chose the green color myself but I’m repainting the bedroom a more vibrant yellow so I wanted to go with something safe 😉

    Warm and cuddly soft, just what we need while easing out of one of the coldest winters I can remember. I also love the fact that these blankets are made here in the U.S, providing jobs right here.

    I think that these blankets are so pretty. I have never owned one myself but I have seen them in the stores and they feel so soft and seems to be fairly heavy enough to really keep you warm in the winter too. I just love the way they look on the bed!

    One of life’s pleasures is sleeping with a soft blanket. The cost of the blanket, though considered in my household, is sometimes budgeted for the nicer quality…softness, non-pilling, blanket.

    I have been looking for a new blanket for my bed but I am really picky about the type of blanket I want. My bed is a place of comfort and peace and my blankets and sheets should be amazingly soft, comfortable and durable. The sheen of these blankets are what caught my eye but your review is what makes me want this blanket for my bed. The part that really convinced me is that it is guaranteed to stay as soft after it is washed and dried.

    First off having these made here in the USA is a huge plus for me. I love a soft fleece blanket but what makes yours special for me is the fact that there’s no pilling or shedding. I had a blanket that did this and it was awful. Your company seems like the best one to get what I want from a blanket.

  67. Cheryl Rahkonen March 23, 2014 at 5:25 pm - Reply

    This blanket looks very warm and soft. I visited the American Blanket Company webpage and found these blankets come in some very beautiful colors–I like Golden Dune. My old fleece blanket is about on its last thread and I really need a new one. After sleeping with a fleece blanket, I would never choose any other type of blanket.

    It’s good to hear about a high quality American made product. They look wonderfully soft, it’d be great to have one on the bed this winter.

    I’m a sucker for pretty packaging too! This blanket looks perfect for cuddling on windy days like this! These would be great Christmas gifts!
